The Koffler Centre of the Arts is delighted to present two virtual panels featuring shortlisted Vine Awards authors on November 10 and November 12, 2020.

The second panel panel celebrates the 2020 Vine Awards shortlisted history writers – Zelda Abramson, Matti Friedman, John Lynch, and Heidi J.S. Tworek – in conversation with juror Allan Levine. Tune in for an insightful discussion on a series of counter-narratives told from both national and global historic perspectives.

The Vine Awards for Canadian Jewish Literature is a national awards program that honours both the best Canadian Jewish writers and non-Jewish Canadian authors who deal with Jewish subjects in Fiction, History, Non-Fiction, Young Adult/Children’s literature, and Poetry. Each winning author receives a prize of $10,000. The 2020 Jury – comprised of authors Judy Batalion, Allan Levine, and Shani Mootoo – reviewed 55 entries to the Fiction, History, Non-Fiction and Young Adult/Children’s categories.

The Vine Awards for Canadian Jewish Literature are made possible by a generous donation by the Lillian and Norman Glowinsky Family Foundation.
